"I recommend these highly...They can't stay in print forever so don't delay!" - Steve Hoffman, mastering engineer

"Blue Note has never sounded this good on CD before - these are the first digital Blue Notes that come close to the sound of vinyl. And the packaging is outstanding. I love the high quality glossy covers, and the insert booklets are the first effort I've seen to fit high quality photography into such a small package. Keep up the good work." - Dennis Davis, Hi-Fi+

"Astute listeners know that the very first Blue Note CD issues are sonically superior to the more recent RVG remasters. Well, these XRCD24s absolutely crush them both, displaying high-frequency air, midrange presence, and bottom-end definition and weight missing on earlier CDs and many LPs as well." - Mark Mickelson, TheAudioBeat.com www.theaudiobeat.com/music/blue_note_xrcd24_cd.htm

Speakin' My Piece was Parlan's first album with horns, teaming his trio with the Turrentine Brothers. The music that the group plays, catchy originals including Parlan's most famous composition, "Wadin," is swinging and sophisticated but also bluesy, greasy and overflowing with soul. Speakin' My Piece, which has superb sound, is essential.

I could go on and on about how good this disk sounds, but the truth is I will be buying them all. In addition, my RVG copies will be sold and replaced by these XRCDs. The sound is smooth, with lots of space between insturments. There is none of the thin digital harshness present. I compared the sound to some of my Classic Records 200 gram Blue Note Reissues. The CD was equal to and in some cases better than vinyl.
